When Can I Return To Work Following Body Lift Surgery?
Added on 30th October 2020
Factors Considered to Return to Work Following Body Lift Surgery
A body lift surgery is an extensive procedure so there are many factors that need to be considered when for your return to work following a body lift surgery. These factors can include the type of work you do and whether it requires plenty of physical movement. There are also general lifestyle factors considered such as how much exercise you do and whether you tend to use weights during your exercise.
In a sedentary job, you can find yourself returning back to work in around 2-4 weeks after the surgery. However, the recovery from the procedure tends to be different from other procedures as it involves a scar circumferencing around the whole body.
Are there any risks and complications to consider?
It’s also worth considering that although rare, there can also be risks and complications concerned within the procedure. Therefore, these also need to be considered when determining the right time to return to work following a body lift surgery.
To ensure you have a smooth recovery, we will talk through these risks and complications during a consultation. You’ll have the opportunity to look at previous patients before and after images as well as talk to fellow patients who have also undergone the surgery. This will help you to make an informed decision about whether a body lift surgery is right for you.
If you have any further questions about the procedure or have concerns about the downtime affecting your work, feel free to contact us to arrange a consultation and the team at UK Aesthetic will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.Back to videos
